CSPC: David Bowie Popularity Analysis

Remaining Long Format Part 5 – Career Spanning Sets

Both Best Of Bowie and Nothing Has Changed contain pretty similar track lists, with the latter including more recent hits as it got released in 2014, 12 years after the former.

As far as big hits are concerned, they feature the same ones. Considering Best Of Bowie is the best selling compilation of the artist discography, thus the 10-15% share generated from each of his classic albums represent as much as half a million units a piece.

  1. Great articel! I know the legend because Barbra covered her classic Life on mars. I still waiting for articels abou France Sales and CSPC for Barbra

  2. Bowie did well for the kind of act he was.

    I really like this series. Can you do wholr popularity analyses for Red Hot Chili Peppers, Little Mix, Janet Jackson, Radiohead and Queen?

    Thanks =)

  3. David’s total is quite good, amazing considering he doesn’t have a hugely successful album but surpassed those who have one (Britney, Guns and Roses etc.) He is definitely up there among the most successful artists in history, despite going against the typical music industry rules and being highly risky and innovative.

    Anyway, i don’t know if you know this, but January 16 would mark Aaliyah’s 38th Birthday! I hope you would do a CSPC analysis on her as it would be quite fitting. I don’t expect her to have a huge result, but as an R&B artist who only released 3 albums, i’m quite curious into how she would rank among her peers.

    Keep up the good work!
